Put A Twist On A Familiar Format

If you’re not used to writing about yourself, coming up with a few good tinder bio lines that capture your personality can quickly turn into a frustrating experience.

That’s why a lot of guys default to something lame, or they just skip the bio entirely. But don’t make that mistake! You’ll get 4x fewer matches than guys who have a Tinder bio.

You can find great ideas for Tinder bios just about anywhere, like movie or book reviews. Even a pros/cons list can be successfully adapted into a Tinder bio.

It’s what a potential match reads between the lines of this profile that makes it so successful. 

Let’s take a look at what she’s likely thinking as she reads them:

See how most of those sentences are doing double duty? 

When your profile appeals to her on multiple levels, she’s that much more excited about the prospect of meeting you in person.

Catch Her Attention With Humor In A Funny Tinder Bio

Having a witty profile can really boost your results on a dating app.

That's because a good sense of humor is a must-have personality trait for the majority of women.

In fact, some studies have even found women’s brains are wired to find funny guys attractive - so why not use science to your advantage?

One cautionary note, however.

Humor can be tricky because it’s so subjective.

Humor done wrong, especially when it's combined with a lackluster primary profile picture, can also make it seem like you’re not serious about meeting someone:

Tailor your witty Tinder bio to what the type of woman you’re looking for would find funny, not what makes your bros laugh.

If you’re not sure, run your Tinder profile by one of the women at your office, or a female friend.

In fact, that’s a good idea no matter what.

The last thing you want to do is highlight a hobby in your profile that interests you, but in a way that is virtually guaranteed to turn her off:

That’s not to say negativity never works. For example, this funny Tinder bio lists reasons NOT to date you, but in a creative way that highlights your sense of humor:

The Best Tinder Bio Says A Lot, With Just A Few Words

Your words and spelling matter. Recent studies found a negative correlation between language errors and the perception of a profile user’s attractiveness. So keep things concise, clear, and correct!

The more skimmable your bio is, the higher the odds she’ll actually read it because people naturally gravitate to things that are easy to read and understand.

That’s a win-win for your Tinder profile.

Why Emoji Work For Dating Profiles

Emoji are the essence of simplicity, which makes them perfect for Tinder bios.

Instead of writing, “I like to travel, surf, go out for sushi, and hit the trails on my mountain bike,” emoji instantly convey the same idea in a more visually interesting format.

They can also save you from sounding cliché.

Instead of the way-overused "I love long walks on the beach," just pop in a beach emoji.

Dense blocks of text, even 500-character or less ones, just aren’t as appealing.

Case in point, this Tinder bio found out in the wild:

Not too many women would even try to decipher that, much less be impressed by it.

Split-second decisions determine your fate on Tinder. You want her to swipe right, so make sure your bio hits all the right notes.

Use The Right Emoji

Steer clear of the poop, mad face, and eggplant - according to Adobe's Emoji Trend Report, they are the biggest turnoffs of any emoji. If it makes your inner 9-year-old snicker, don’t include it in your Tinder bio.

Adobe also discovered that 73% of US emoji users find people who use emojis to be cooler, friendlier, and funnier than a person who doesn't use them.

However, they need to be used in a way that instantly makes sense. If there are too many emojis, or they seem random, the bio can become visually overwhelming:

Keep things simple! Try incorporating emojis into a pros and cons bio, like this:

Tinder - like any dating app - is all about the quick sell. 

You've got limited space to make your case to potential matches, so every word you choose needs to promote your message.

"Elevator Pitch With Emoji" Example:

Successful Tinder bios highlight a few attractive traits in a way that sounds casual and natural.

"Elevator Pitch Without Emoji" Example:

Tinder bio example 4: the elevator pitch profile

In less than 500 characters, she’s learned this guy:

  • Has a solid career in a lucrative field
  • Possesses the resources to travel frequently
  • Is physically fit & spends time outdoors
  • Has a good work/life balance

Who wouldn’t want to know more about him? Plus she's got lots of inspiration for a conversation starter.

BONUS PRO TIP: Grammar Matters, Folks.

She doesn’t know you, so she’s judging you purely on your photos and your bio - and that first impression gets formed in microseconds. Every single word needs to make you look good, not give her reason to think twice about swiping right or returning your message.

A study found that 68% of singles swipe left when they spot poor punctuation or grammar in a profile, even when they think that user is attractive.

Your phone has spell check, so use it. You’ll be that much closer to a perfect Tinder bio.

Terrible Photos Will Sink Even The Best Tinder Bio

When you intrigue her with a good primary photo, she's more likely to stay and read your bio. And the more she wants to learn about you, the better your chances of getting a right swipe!

These 3 expert dating photo tips can get you started:

#1. Follow The Recipe For The Perfect Tinder Photo

When a bunch of neuroscientists turn their attention to Tinder, everybody wins.

They identified the traits the most attractive photos on Tinder have in common, which you can apply to choosing your primary photo on any dating app:

perfect Tinder photo
  1. You’re the only person in the frame
  2. There’s enough contrast to make you “pop” out of the background
  3. It’s a close up
  4. You’re not wearing sunglasses

Not blocking your eyes had the most drastic effect on a particular photo’s match rate.

This falls right in line with Tinder sociologist Dr. Jessica Carbino’s theory that if she can’t make eye contact with you, she subconsciously fears you might be hiding something so you seem less trustworthy.

#2. Use Color To Stand Out

According to the app's in-house Tinder user data, the majority of guys wear black, or another neutral tone, in their photos.

That means if you want to instantly catch her eye as she’s swiping, choose a photo where you’re wearing a color that flatters your skin tone.

On average, women spend 3 to 7 seconds on a Tinder profile before choosing to swipe left or right. A pop of color can grab her attention, so she stops auto-swiping and takes a moment to really look at your profile.

#3. Get Input From Strangers


It’s simply not possible to evaluate a picture of yourself the same way a stranger would.

You’re used to looking in the mirror, so you automatically gloss over the fine details that someone who’s never seen you before might notice right away.

Girls may even react to your photo in a way that never even occurred to you.

For instance, if you’re leaned up against a graffiti covered wall, rocking your favorite Affliction hoody and a straight face, you may think you look pretty suave.

You know you’re not a dangerous guy, so you’d be shocked to find out she took one look at that photo and filed you under “wouldn’t want to meet in a dark alley.”

The Devil Is In The Details

And that’s why strangers are better at choosing the photos in which you look the most attractive, competent, and trustworthy.

If you don’t mind giving up total control of your lineup, you can activate Tinder’s Smart Photos feature.

It automatically shows your most right-swiped pic first. (But only activate that once you've got a solid lineup. Moving the best of the worst to pole position isn't doing you any favors.)

It's generally more effective to use a website like PhotoFeeler to gather data on your most promising Tinder photos, and then make your selection accordingly.

How To Meet The Best Local Singles On Tinder

Getting her to swipe right with a creative Tinder bio and strong photos is half the battle - keeping it comes next. Multiple sources report the average user spends 90 minutes a day on dating apps.

Between swiping and writing the kind of messages that lead to dates, you’ve got to put in the hours if you want to reap the rewards. Invest some time putting these Tinder bio ideas, tricks & tips to good use, or...
